The company Maier S. Coop. hereby announces the “VII Maier S. Coop International Design Competition”, focusing on
Automotive Vehicle Design, from both the standpoint of Style and Colour & Trim
Aesthetics in the autonomous vehicle of the year 2030 (Spaces & Interaction)
The autonomous vehicle is closer and closer to becoming a reality. Nowadays, we might say that it is already technologically possible for a vehicle to circulate without a driver.
It seems that this technology may lead to increased safety and improved circulation, as well as contributing to the implementation of new mobility concepts (vehicle as a service, shared transport, etc.), but… what about the design?
What will be the influence of the autonomous vehicle in vehicle design?
What New Features and New Products will the autonomous vehicle bring?
New aesthetics? (Materials, finish, graphic design, etc.)
What about the emotional values?
The aim of the competition is to imagine and visualize new concepts for the autonomous vehicle in 2030 in terms of formal languages, features, finishes, etc. and see how they will affect the following specific environments of the vehicle, taking into account parameters such as Materials, Colour, Space, Interaction with the Environment, Use, Semantics…etc.:
